[REQUEST] GL504GS BIOS unlock
#21
(11-10-2018, 12:46 AM)Lost_N_BIOS Wrote: Cool, looks like both are there!  For you to change the setting I mentioned is easy, no BIOS flashing is required, only thing you need to do is to boot to grub and change the setting.
This way you do not have any worries about a bad BIOS flashing experience, nor have to worry about recovery!

Get a USB Stick, formatted to FAT32, and put this file on the root of USB (ie not in any folders)
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...7913920326

See this guide, steps #8-14
https://www.win-raid.com/t3908f16-GUIDE-...Flash.html

On step #14 is where we will change the setting shown in post #14 here above, instead of the ones that guide covers
You will instead be changing variable 0x91B

So, at step #15 of the guide you can enter either one of the below, to enable XMP 1 or XMP2 respectively
Setup_Var 0x91B 0x2

Or
Setup_Var 0x91B 0x3

To put back to BIOS Default you enter the following at grub prompt
Setup_Var 0x91B 0x0

You're genius! It really switched memory setup, but in a very strange manner (it didn't initialized 3000Mhz XMP mode), but RAM frequency changed.

No matter 0x2, or 0x3 - it gaves you same indicators. Take a look at screenshot.

It happens because chipset can't go further that 2667Mhz?

Great you got it! So yes, this could be Chipset or CPU limitation, but you can check this and see if it helps first, then if not we can change something else and try again. Remember, all this can be set back to original values too, so nothing to worry about changing as long as you input the correct variable.

First, lets enable QCLK Odd Ratio, so all memory multipliers are available. Do this ONLY, and then reboot and see what the memory speed is, if same move onto the next one and see if still same, if still same after second I will give you the setting to change multiplier directly (Or we can enable custom and not use XMP)

One Of: QCLK Odd Ratio, VarStoreInfo (VarOffset/VarName): 0x7F6
One Of Option: Disabled, Value (8 bit): 0x0 (default) {09 07 04 00 30 00 00}
One Of Option: Enabled, Value (8 bit): 0x1 {09 07 03 00 00 00 01}

To change from default here, use this
Setup_Var 0x7F6 0x1


Then if no change, lets change reference clock next from 133 to 100, because at default 133 you'll only be able to use certain memory multipliers, same for 100, and XMP may not be able to set certain ones depending on these settings being enabled or not.

One Of: Memory Reference Clock, VarStoreInfo (VarOffset/VarName): 0x7F3
One Of Option: 133, Value (8 bit): 0x0 (default) {09 07 0B 14 30 00 00}
One Of Option: 100, Value (8 bit): 0x1 {09 07 0A 14 00 00 01}

Setup_var 0x7F3 0x1

And finally, so you can tinker around if the above doesn't get it sorted (Not all of these may be able to be used with every Memory Reference Clock, some may only work when that is set to 100, or some only when it's 133
One Of: Memory Ratio, VarStoreInfo (VarOffset/VarName): 0x7F5
One Of Option: Auto, Value (8 bit): 0x0 (default) {09 07 8D 00 3
One Of Option: 3, Value (8 bit): 0x3 {09 07 41 02 00 00 03}
One Of Option: 4, Value (8 bit): 0x4 {09 07 E1 13 00 00 04}
One Of Option: 5, Value (8 bit): 0x5 {09 07 E2 13 00 00 05}
One Of Option: 6, Value (8 bit): 0x6 {09 07 E3 13 00 00 06}
One Of Option: 7, Value (8 bit): 0x7 {09 07 E4 13 00 00 07}
One Of Option: 8, Value (8 bit): 0x8 {09 07 E5 13 00 00 08}
One Of Option: 9, Value (8 bit): 0x9 {09 07 E6 13 00 00 09}
One Of Option: 10, Value (8 bit): 0xA {09 07 E7 13 00 00 0A}
One Of Option: 11, Value (8 bit): 0xB {09 07 E8 13 00 00 0B}
One Of Option: 12, Value (8 bit): 0xC {09 07 E9 13 00 00 0C}
One Of Option: 13, Value (8 bit): 0xD {09 07 EA 13 00 00 0D}
One Of Option: 14, Value (8 bit): 0xE {09 07 EB 13 00 00 0E}
One Of Option: 15, Value (8 bit): 0xF {09 07 EC 13 00 00 0F}
One Of Option: 16, Value (8 bit): 0x10 {09 07 ED 13 00 00 10}
One Of Option: 17, Value (8 bit): 0x11 {09 07 EE 13 00 00 11}
One Of Option: 18, Value (8 bit): 0x12 {09 07 EF 13 00 00 12}
One Of Option: 19, Value (8 bit): 0x13 {09 07 F0 13 00 00 13}
One Of Option: 20, Value (8 bit): 0x14 {09 07 F1 13 00 00 14}
One Of Option: 21, Value (8 bit): 0x15 {09 07 F2 13 00 00 15}
One Of Option: 22, Value (8 bit): 0x16 {09 07 F3 13 00 00 16}
One Of Option: 23, Value (8 bit): 0x17 {09 07 F4 13 00 00 17}
One Of Option: 24, Value (8 bit): 0x18 {09 07 F5 13 00 00 18}
One Of Option: 25, Value (8 bit): 0x19 {09 07 F6 13 00 00 19}
One Of Option: 26, Value (8 bit): 0x1A {09 07 F7 13 00 00 1A}
One Of Option: 27, Value (8 bit): 0x1B {09 07 F8 13 00 00 1B}
One Of Option: 28, Value (8 bit): 0x1C {09 07 F9 13 00 00 1C}
One Of Option: 29, Value (8 bit): 0x1D {09 07 FA 13 00 00 1D}
One Of Option: 30, Value (8 bit): 0x1E {09 07 FB 13 00 00 1E}
One Of Option: 31, Value (8 bit): 0x1F {09 07 FC 13 00 00 1F}

If Memory Reference Clock set to 100, below = 3000Mhz
100 x 30 = 3000MHz
Setup_var 0x7F5 0x1E

If Memory Reference Clock set to 133, below = close to 3000Mhz
133 x 22 = 2926MHz
Setup_var 0x7F5 0x16

133 x 23 = 3059MHz
Setup_var 0x7F5 0x17

I'm not yet tried, I had a lot of work.

Can we like, enable hidden options via grub? And make it possible to see them directly in UEFI?

Set up:
Setup_Var 0x7F6 0x1
Setup_var 0x7F3 0x1
Setup_var 0x7F5 0x1E

Is seems like nothing changed at all  Huh

How can reset to defaults at once? (EZFlash BIOS I think is radical way)

To make options visible I have to modify BIOS for you, some things I can enable to be visible, some I can't sometimes. If you want to get started on that you have to flash to BIOS I posted in post #12, then we move forward from there enabling the rest of what's missing from your view.

For the settings you mentioned you need the following (Otherwise you are setting 4Ghz memory speed due to 0x7F3 set to 133 x30=4Ghz)
Setup_var 0x7F3 0x0
Setup_var 0x7F5 0x1E

Here, explained again are your two ways to try to get 3Ghz, a little better explained than I did above.

If Memory Reference Clock (0x7F3) set to 100 (0x1), below = 3000Mhz
100 x 30 = 3000MHz
Setup_var 0x7F5 0x1E

If Memory Reference Clock (0x7F3) set to 133 (0x0), below = close to 3000Mhz
133 x 22 = 2926MHz
Setup_var 0x7F5 0x16

133 x 23 = 3059MHz
Setup_var 0x7F5 0x17
Yes, EZ Flash stocK BIOS will reset any of these changes to default, and I think simply loading optimized defaults and applying again will too.

Hi, it gave very same result with memory speed ~1333Mhz (2666Mhz in dual rate), but ramped-up L1 cache latencies ~75Ns.

Propably i will look onto flashing BIOS.

Did you try both ways?

100 x 30 = 3000MHz
Setup_var 0x7F5 0x1E

And
133 x 22 = 2926MHz
Setup_var 0x7F5 0x16

If yes, then there may be some chipset limitation to 2666, flashing BIOS will not change this

Hi to All
Anybody tried to install macos on this Laptop?

Hi Lost_n_BIOS

ASUS updated factory bios to 305, and now GRUB magic doesn't work as it replies - offset out of range! So trick with switching to XMP works no more.

Can you please update me on current bios which is attached

Here is setup IFR from 305, use search to find each setting you were modifying, then the VarName/VarOffset value right after that is what you need
http://s000.tinyupload.com/index.php?fil...6919644976

Example, now >> Memory Reference Clock, VarStoreInfo (VarOffset/VarName): 0x7F6 (Instead of previous 0x7F3)
If you cannot figure it out, let me know which all variables you need again and I will compile a new short list for you

@relaxalex - what is macos?
